Lean in. Plant down. Grow up, curated by TJ Walsh discovers how we can explore, learn and change our situations so that we can become stronger through our pain. It is our hurt that can crack us open and let the light in. It is our pain that can help move us towards living a more deeply fulfilling life.
Work from 13 artists addressing this theme will be on display at Emerge Wellness, 1221 Locust Street, 2nd floor (entrance on St. James Street) from June 25th through September 27th, with a reception on Wednesday, September 16th from 6-9 PM.
Shown here is one of my pieces, "What Is And What Can Be", archival pigment print. I sought out to photograph this signage in Baltimore, MD at Second Chance, Inc., and it's made by one of my favorite Philadelphia artists and muralists Steve "ESPO" Powers. The message is an inspiration and reminds me to keep moving forward.
